Lurking behind Alfred Hitchcock, cinema’s “master of suspense” — the extraordinary film icon known for orchestrating some of the most intense experiences of menace and intrigue audiences have ever seen, was a hidden side: his creatively explosive romance with his steadfast wife and filmmaking collaborator, Alma Reville. HITCHCOCK lays bare their captivating and complex love story. It does so through the sly, shadowy lens of their most daring filmmaking adventure: the making of the spine-tingling 1960 thriller, PSYCHO, which would become the director’s most controversial and legendary film. When the tumultuous, against-the-odds production was over, nothing about movies would ever be the same – but few realized that it took two to pull it off. Director Sacha Gervasi (Anvil: The Story of Anvil) joins us for a conversation on the challenges and rewards of making a film about this iconic filmmaker.
“Hugely entertaining. Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are acting giants in stellar form.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
